We recently wrote about the possibility of turning your iPhone 4/4S into the next-generation device from Apple with the help of a conversion mod kit.

Based on leaked iPhone 5 designs, a “conversion kit,” that was available in white and black, was put up for sale at Phone5mod.com for around $30.

However, Apple has issued a take down notice to the company, demanding that the stop selling the kit.

OpSec Security, a company that claims to be working on Apple’s behalf, sent a letter to the sellers.

The company promises to accept orders in the next 48 hours and to ship the kits to those who have already asked for them.
